IntuBox

President Cyril Ramaphosa acknowledges the innovation and foresight of the emergency doctors at the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital in Johannesburg, for the design and production of the innovative Intubox to help protect frontline healthcare workers when treating patients who are suffering from Covid-19.

The Intubox – an innovation by Professor Feroza Motara and medical teams from Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital – provides a lightweight and transparent protective enclosure around the head and chest of patients. This helps to limit contact with patients during intubation, extubation and aerolising procedures. It can also be used for patients with drug-resistant tuberculosis and patients suffering from Ebola.
